The Fighter scribes Eric Johnson and Paul Tamasy have picked up feature rights to Casey Sherman and Boston Herald reporter Dave Wedge's upcoming book Boston Strong.

The book breaks down the events of the fatal Boston bombing on Patriots' day and the manhunt for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who was captured four days later. The book will hit shelves next year.

This is the second project that Eric Johnson, Paul Tamasy and producer Dorothy Aufiero have worked on with Casey Sherman. The first being the author and Michael J. Tougias' 2009 book The Finest Hours, which is schedule to be released in 2015. Disney bought the story, which surrounds the 1952 Coast Guard oil tanker rescue.

No production schedule has been released.
